Garage List
2008 E93-M3  [0.00]
Sure did not give away any M3's in Canada

Mine was list $ and had to be ordered, then waited in line almost 4 months to take delivery. You can't negociate when there are none on the showroom floor. Now under a blanket till spring.

Well, it's not like the E46 M3 and E9X M3 cost the same either. I'd hope for the bump in price and years spent on the drawing boards they made some improvements everywhere.

No M3's last year

I think a big reason why is that there was no M3 offered last year. Obviously the M3 is the cheapest of the M cars so it has the most sales volume. They've also added the M3 sedan which appeals to people who need 4 doors. So if you think about it, there is definetly some spin to that article.

That's true. I stand corrected. Even still, there's a definite slant in that article.

Don't know if anybody else has stated, but the car went on sale in Europe before it arrived in the US....so yes there was an M3 at this time last year.

Your point is still valid, however, as the car had only been available for a short period, so it shouldn't be that hard to show growth.
